The answer is a simple, solid, unequivocal "No".

I think the whole point of using basilisk etc is to not embrace the new firefox technology and if the forks used quantum then why would people use the forks and not firefox.?
From what i understand the waterfox developer is going to incorporate quantum which will in effect kill waterfox as there would be no difference between using that and firefox itself.

Waterfox is simply going to hobble along after Mozilla. it always has, and despite grand announcements to the contrary I never expected it to be otherwise.

Good to know. I don't like Firefox Quantum.

Well, meow. If I can get to the front door without hobbling, I'll leave a saucer of milk on the doorstep tonight.

Bless you. No worry, I have a spare key at a friend's house. Imagine me … hobbling … all the way there and back.
